Description

There are well-established trails approaching from the north and south (eg. Ron Coleman Trail). The East Ridge provides some surprisingly solid limestone with lots of 4th class or easy 5th class climbing. The approach is through desert mountainous terrain with plenty of the expected foliage --so be prepared for cross country movement through sometimes steep, cactus, ocotillo and "Spanish Dagger"-covered hillsides. Best avoided during hot periods. Allow 2+ hours for the approach.
Summit area is fenced off for communication s towers. Details

Getting There

We hiked in from the corner of Zircon Dr and Mountain View Dr. Pass the locked gate and head west up the Jeep trail. Keep moving west north west looking for a steep spur which allows one to gain the east ridge proper. Head west toward the central towers at the summit.
